    A sign from the gods…the mayans were right…….OOPs that was last year!!

    It’s gotta be by design, the earth is remembering english for the post armageddon rebuild obviously.

    Must have been the engrish-speaking god, rather than the chinese, greek, arabic or other varieties of gods the weak-minded obey. Perhaps God sent the butterflies to Paul and directed they fly around in sequences spelling out words, and this is how the bible stories came about.

    • ZenTiger

      Faulty logic. This English speaking person collected the symbols he recognised. Who knows, perhaps every letter and symbol of every language can be found on the wings of butterflies. They might also feature recognised trade marks, like Nike, Coca Cola and Shell (Z). Gives new meaning to the term “butterfly effect”

    Would be cooler if they were all on one butterfly

  • the great thing is, all those letters and numbers can be found in the New King James Bible, you know, the one Jesus read…

    Intelligent design. We tend to mock what we can’t see, feel, hear, proclaiming “doesn’t exist”. Yet, it’s been proven we can’t hear the entire spectrum of sound, nor see the entire light spectrum either. Yet, we presume to deny based only on our limited ability to ‘see, hear, feel’ with our inherently flawed senses? Even when we know some animals have another “sense” with “supernatural” events…

    For my thinking, there’s too much ‘organised creation’ absolutely everywhere for there to be anything but some form of higher intelligence / intelligent design / God / Allah / Budda / Big sky Daddy etc…

    From making ants reproduce and replecate perfectly every time, to our exactly perfect positioning in the Solar System… Too much coincidence for me…

    • Mr_V4

      Oh do tell which animals can sense supernatural events?

      Animals don’t have another ‘sense’ per-se, but some do have more advanced senses than humans. for example birds can see UV wavelengths, elephants can hear infrasound. A mantis shrimp can detect polarized light and many more wavelengths than most species on earth.

        The missus can, she knows where you are even before you are there.

        So….where’s the zero then?

        • Graeme Edgeler

          Between the “N” and the “P”.

          • Bunswalla

            That’s just st00pid

    Random Intelligent Designer , at the amazing age of 91 .

    Intelligent design. Bought a poster of this Butterfly alphabet/numbers years ago at the Butterfly Sanctuary in Kuranda (near Cairns) – just beautiful. http://www.australianbutterflies.com/

    • Bunswalla

      What a shock you voted for that, Lesley. However I call bullshit on the whole thing, based on the first piece of evidence. Never in a million years is that an ‘A’

      • LesleyNZ

        Watch out – butterflies are also intelligent.

  • Bunswalla

    Before we discuss, what’s the point? What point are you or Mr Sandved trying to make? I guess if you look at everything through an electron microscope you’ll find all sorts of things.

    I think having butterflies display all the letters of the alphabet and all the numbers, but putting them on different butterflies in different continents, is very good evidence of the lack of intelligent design – because it’s such a pointlessly stupid thing to do.

    • LesleyNZ

      Buns – obviously you are not a creative person.

      • Ronnie Chow

        Bunswalla is our residence renaissance man , LesleyNZ , except when it comes to blind spots in mirrors .
        I must point out however that some of the ‘interesting’ posts of late have been getting a bit ‘gay’

  • Bunswalla

    Bullshit – there’s no zero.

    • Lion_ess

      God rubbed the tail off the Q for that, and he never mastered his M’s either.

  • Troy

    It took him 24 years to do that? Whatever rocks ya boat I guess.
